Well this past month has been fun, but it has been a month of relaxing and working... Not anything to really blog about, huh? Excuse me if I don't update often this next month as well... we have this month to "save up" for our trip so we will be doing more work and less fun. Once we get started I may either just start updating this blog with our travels or make a sister blog. :)
I will try to get on here and update once in a while... so don't forget about me for long! :D

Two people in one Bus can be kind of tight and having little lose objects floating around is no good, so I took my behind the door shoe organizer, cut it and attached it to the back of the passenger's seat:

And made a little curtain to go over the top:

The bottom is stuck to the metal of the passenger seat with these huge super magnets my friend had at work. Yay free stuff for the Bus!

Camped-out Pics:

I made a "screen" for the sliding door to help keep bugs out:

If we want the hatch open but no one to see in we just hang up a sheet:

A peak inside from the Hatch: We hang a tapestry up behind the driver's seat for privacy

Camping is fun! :)

Fruits of Labor

It's been so long since I've last updated! We are now being able to enjoy the fruits of our labor these past 6 months, and it's great! When we took the Bus to the shop the only thing wrong was we missed a wire going to the fuel sensor. :P the tech said the Bus was in good condition, nothing wrong with it. We need the driver's side CV joint worked on I believe, or something similar because there's a noise that comes from that area. trey installed the stereo and we made one panel for the cab but the driver's side will be tricky to make because of where the headlight is pushed in a little. We also have a leak in the area when we are driving in the rain. But when we are parked it doesn't leak it seems...

So luckily we got him back just in time for the High Country Bus Festival! It was just an 1 1/2 away from Boone in Crumpler NC. It was a ton of fun! I have been trying to upload pics for the past few days but for some reason it won't let me... Maybe me connection isn't too good.

I plan to post some more photos of my interior all decked out and finished... coming soon hopefully :P
